On display will be the well established Act2/FastOcean multi-wavelength fluorometer-based systems for in situ and laboratory-based assessment of phytoplankton physiology and GPP.
CTG's Sam Kirby and Emma Johnson will be on hand to talk about CTG's low cost Lux family of miniature digital fluorometers optimized to monitor Chlorophyll a, Turbidity, Hydrocarbon, CDOM, Phycoerythrin Cyanobacteria, Phycocyanin Cyanobacteria and many dyes including Rhodamine and Fluorescein.
CTG has a long history of designing sensors for hydrocarbon monitoring - specially designed to monitor crude and refined oil from coastal margins to deep ocean - the new V-Lux fluorometer will also be on display.
Information on CTG's highly successful FastBallast Compliance Monitor - capable of determining the compliance of treated ballast water at the IMO D2 & USCG Discharge Standards will aso be available and delegates will also have an opportunity to learn of another of CTG's Green Ship offerings, the Sea Sentry - a compliance monitor for wash water from exhaust gas scrubber systems.
What is the Challenger Conference all about?
Challenger Conference 2018 promises to provide a fantastic showcase of marine science, covering all areas of ocean research. The official conference programme will commence with an ice-breaker event on the evening of the 10th September. This is then followed by a three-day lecture and poster programme and includes a conference dinner at 'The Boiler Shop' which dates back to the 1829 and was a focal part of the Stephenson Co locomotive works which built Stephenson's Rocket.
Alongside the formal conference programme there are also a range special interest groups and community meetings taking place during and after the conference, details of which will be available leading up to the conference.
